  • Leased and Owned Licenses

    Hum, I would like to know what is the difference between a Leased and an Owned License.

    Also, what is the difference between buying one or three licenses?? Do we get 3 boards instead of one??

    Thanks for your help.

    Each license lets you run one board (off of one set of the files and one database).
    If you purchase more than one license, then you can install vBulletin in as many locations as you have licenses (e.g. you buy 2 license and install one board at www.mydomain.com and another at www.macsrule.com)

    A leased license lets you run the installation of vB for one year from the date of purchase. At then ed of the year you will need to renew ($85), change to an owned license ($160), or remove vBulletin from your site and delete all the files from your website.

    An owned license lets you run the installation of vBulletin for an unlimited amount of time. After one year, you will need to pay $30 annually, only if you wish to be able to download the latest version (say an update or major version release). You can continue to run your board without renewing download access though.

    Both license types allow you to change the location of your board (the domain), provided that you remove it from the old location. and of course, you get (what should be award-winning) support for the life of our license (1 year - Leased / Forever - Owned) from the wonderful vBulletin staff.

    HTH. All dollar amounts stated above are US dollars.

            Andy pretty much summed it up. He must be trying to put me out of a job.

              One disclaimer...you aren't REQUIRED to pay $30.00 for renewel. Its strictly optional. You ARE REQUIRED to pay $30.00/year if you want to download the latest edition of vBulletin after your year is up though.

              Other than that, Andy did sum it up
